I am not sure about your budget. If you are willing to spend $280RM per nite, I would recommend Westin. It is next to Marriot hotel and convenient location. It is brand new as well and the famous Westin heavenly beds are really good
was told tat berjaya times sq is good. spacious rooms. and the location is very good as its so near bintang walk (the little orchard). and if u're game enough to try roadside food, can walk to the stretch of road tin its called in cantonese (keong seik kai) for the food. cheap, good and very nice.
and if i remember correctly, its easy to get to the china town from bintang walk also. KLCC is nice but price isnt tat attractive as bintang or other places.
i didnt try the 3 hotels u listed yet. usually i tried those like 3-4stars and those with a very presentable and comfortable feel to it. some hotels dont feel easy on ourselves.. i dont want to comment much but when u go there, u will know if u happen to see some.
oh ... i was told tat melia hotel just opposite berjaya times sq isnt too bad either. this one shld be good coz the guests are usually biz pple.
can be qite expensive thou...i stayed in PLaza Park Royal which is next to Hotel Federal(same stretch as Lot 10) during national day break...nice place cos they just renovated me paid $160 nett 4 a nite..
i stayed at istana during my last trip in kl. i think quite value for money bcoz the room beri big and even have separate bath, shower and toilet facilities. bt bintang easily accessed too. just walk down the road and you can see lot 1 liao.
my fren went to westin, newly opened. heard the beds are the heavenly ones.
i stayed at jw marriot and ritz b4. The former is next to a shopping center. VERY convenient. Ritz is smaller but i like the rooms and bed its huge. We squeezed 3 ppl into the bed and still had turning room.
alot of shops at berjaya times sq are not opened or rented out yet, according to my fren.
the other posh nice hotel is mandarin oriental right next to KLCC.
I stayed in JW Marriot before. It's got a good location but I find the rooms abit old and it smells whenever you return to the room. You've to wait for a while before the smell goes away after the air-con is activated.
Why? I stayed in Cititel at Mid Valley for about 2 weeks when I was sent to KL to work and I find it not bad. Mid Valley was near my KL office then. I quite like that place too as I normally shop there after work.
Hello everyone, i am going to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore. I might book a plane ticket instead of riding a 4 hours BUS ride. Now upon arrival what are the places that you can suggest. I will be there for 1 day only.
I would also like to try the BUNGEE JUMPING in Kuala Lumpur ( i heard they have it there, where is it located?). How much is the Bungee Jumping?
Im so excited to try the Bungee Jumping, i am really adventurous and i tried it before in Philippines.
kim> I think Bungee Jumping is at KL petronas twin tower (if I m not mistaken).
I stayed in Berjaya Times Square hotel last weekend, very 1st time experience and is great. The shopping center is the largest in Msia, and walking distance to golden triangle, sungei wang/BB plaza, lowyat plaza (IT mall), jln Alor for the grilled chicken wing etc. It is also located near to the monorail, very convenient. If you love gundam model/figuring, the Times sq is definately the shopping paradize. There is also indoor themepark and 3D cinema...
